Microsoft Corporation’s Windows Azure brings together all applications, data, devices, and partners, both on-premises and in the Cloud. Windows Azure’s support for industry-standard protocols provides broad interoperability to connect across enterprise applications and devices. Microsoft’s suite of integration tools and services helps build hybrid solutions that span from datacenter to the Cloud.
BizTalk Server, which is Microsoft Corporation’s enterprise integration server, coordinates across mission-critical, on-premises applications, and can be accessed from Cloud applications through the Service Bus. BizTalk includes the tools that are needed to connect apps across the data center, and in the Cloud.
BizTalk Services provides a robust business to business (B2B) and application integration platform as a service in the Cloud. It is a simple, powerful, and extensible Cloud-based integration service that provides Business-to-Business (B2B) and Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) capabilities for delivering Cloud and hybrid integration solutions.
The Windows Azure team at MSIDC contributes to the development of all these technologies.
